Welcome to Artineering: the Art of Lance Dehné

Artineering is about "design-build".

It is about art, engineering, mechanics, botany, ornithology, ideology, physiology, sculpturology, colorology, and visionology. Conceptual ideas are re-thought, reworked, fine tuned, and molded into a functional and aesthetic product. The components can be metal (polished, scuffed, scored, dented, scraped, bent); wood (dried, engraved, chipped, shaved, grainy, knotty, petrified); rubber (worn, dry, dirty, stamped, transparent); flesh (muscle, organs, bones, breath); plastic (molded, colored, shaped, wet); glass (broken, mirrored, smoked, sunlit); or whatever else, animate or inanimate.

The similitude of the universe.
